Deborah Zilliox, HHP, Certified Pilates Instructor
I am a Nationally Certified and CAMTA Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and BBU Certified Pilates Instructor.
I arrived in California to attend the University of San Diego and graduated with a B.A. in Psychology in 2002. During that time, I found my area of interest centered on Health Psychology and decided to continue my education focusing on manual and alternative therapies. Since then, I received my Holistic Health Practitioner certification from the Academy of Health Professions in La Mesa, certified in Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage through Kate Jordan Seminars, nationally certified through the NCBTMB and certified through the California Massage Therapy Association.
Much of my early experience was working with clients in Chiropractic offices, sports clinics and hospitals until I opened my own clinic in 2008. I understand the importance and have seen tremendous results when massage is used to help clients rehabilitate from injury as well as maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I am also a Certified Pilates instructor through Balanced Body University since 2010 and work one on one with clients in Private Sessions. Much of the focus of the Pilates sessions is around breath work and core strengthening as well as aligning hips, shoulders and working to release areas of tension or pain.
All in all, I LOVE helping people and am so thrilled to be able to work one on one with clients and see tremendous results in their lives.
Jonni Garro, Certified Pilates Instructor
Jonni Garro began studying Pilates at 14 years old under the guidance of Julian Littleford after undergoing three ankle and growth plate reconstruction surgeries.

Yomana Sukkar, Certified Massage Therapist
My pursuits in the healing arts led me to work with renowned teachers throughout the world. I studied personally with Reiki Masters in the foothills of the Himalayas, Tibetan Medicine Herbalists in India, Shamans in Peru, Tai Chi Masters in Chile and medical professionals in the U.S. As a result, my professional work is a fusion of cross cultural techniques and therapeutic modalities.
My art is evaluating and determining the tensions and blockages within the body to identify their origins and serve each client’s particular needs to rebalance the body and begin the path to healing. I have worked with thousands of clients ranging from professional world champion athletes to cancer survivors. I successfully treated clients with fractures, injuries, chronic pains, pregnancy, scoliosis, alignment issues, amputations, addictions, co-dependency, nerve damage and spinal injuries.
According to each client’s unique condition, I tailor massages and treatment plans which may include Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Reiki, Sacred Hot Stones, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure, Active Isolated Stretching, Pregnancy, Quantum Touch, Scar Tissue Therapy, Myoskeletal Alignment techniques and Intuitive Alignment.
Cari Machado, Living Balanced Massage and Bodywork
I'm the owner and operator of Living Balanced Massage and Bodywork. I started my practice in 2010 after graduating from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, in San Diego, Ca. Although I specialized in Tui Na (TCM -Traditional Chinese Medical massage), my coursework also included eastern deep tissue and sports massage, pre and post surgical massage, structural integration, cupping, energy work, myofascial release, prenatal massage, assisted stretching and traction and acupressure meridian therapy. In 2008, I was fortunate enough to travel to China to complete the Tui Na program at the TCM Hospital in Shanghai through the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2016, I completed additional coursework online in both Meridian Massage and Facial Rejuvenation cupping techniques.
Although I do offer a more relaxing Swedish style circulatory massage, and some light energy work, my style of massage is a more firm type of integrated deep tissue. I also incorporate cupping and assisted stretching into most of my custom massages when needed.
